Trivia

The movie features a section about the history of painting graffiti on trains. The scene opens with a 3D animation of two beautiful cgi Krylon cans moving dynamically between two painted up trains speeding towards the camera. Well, the big "Secret Easter Egg" in this scene is that it was designed and animated by Beau DeSilva, an LA artist and graffiti writer who managed to slip in his own graffiti into the movie's epic scene. Look closely at the graffiti on the trains speeding by and all of the graffiti are pieces created by Beau DeSilva (SKOE) and his buddy Jon Hyman (DWELL). Although Beau DeSilva and his friend were not featured artists in the documentary, both Beau DeSilva and Jon Hyman, two very talented graffiti writers, have their graffiti pieces immortalized in the most dynamic, CGI heavy scene in the entire movie!

Amazing 3D animation and motion graphic interpretation DAIM's unique letter style!
28 February 2017 | by desilvabeauSee all my reviews

Hats off the 3D Motion Graphic artist who created that gorgeous transformation shot with the world renowned artist, DAIM (Mirko Reisser). DAIM is hands down the BEST graffiti style typographical painter showing the highest level skill that is unmatched by anyone in the graffiti scene.

My mind was blown when I saw DAIM's live action painted style shapes digitally mutate into what would be that abstract shape's natural progression into becoming a definable letter style. With the complexity of DAIM's letter style, I am very impressed with the 3D Motion Graphic artist who animated that scene.

Great film!
